Jobs Light cluster is Databricks’ equivalent of open source Apache Spark. It targets simple, non-critical workloads that don’t need the performance, reliability or autoscaling benefits provided by Databricks’ proprietary technologies. In comparison, the Jobs cluster provides you with all the aforementioned benefits to boost your team productivity and reduce your total cost of ownership.
